Right, I'm a bit nervous about this, but here goes:
The Official BIG SCARY GOAL List 2008
1. EDIT The Mystical Wombat's Guide to Life and submit to a publisher by July
2. CREATE and post Podcasts of the novel
3. LEARN to speak Italian to conversational level AND record a song in the language
4. COMPLETE my album About Time by the end of the year
5. LOSE 1 stone by the summer
There. Tis done! I'm a great believer in making myself do things, so now I've said it, I have to do it!

Happy New Year!!
OK, so it's a little late, but hey at least it's still January!
I haven't got resolutions as such this year, just some Big Scary Challenges that I've set myself - one of which is to find a publisher for The Mystical Wombat's Guide to Life. Instead of talking about it, I'm actually going to go ahead and do it (even though just typing that scares the heck out of me!) I'm working on getting the manuscript ready for the first Mystical Wombat Podcast - which is great fun and, I hope, will be a slightly different way to get my words out there into the big wide world. News on that as it happens...
I've put some more articles up at Helium.com - some reviews, a novel excerpt and a drama script to boot! I'm also still working on the album, so I definitely want to see that put to bed before the end of the year.
Will it all happen? Who knows, but right now I'm feeling positive...
